Car Parking Facilities and Arrival

There is free parking on site for customers only. The car park is situated at the side and rear of the premises.

There are 25 parking spaces. The car park surface is small pebbles with no tarmac paths. We will be pleased to guide you to our dedicated extra-wide parking, where required, for parent & child / wheelchair users etc. Please contact us prior to arrival and again upon arrival, if you require direct assistance in this regard.

The car park is well lit at night. Please feel free to contact us in advance and upon arrival, if you would like any assistance between the car park and the building. The shortest distance between the nearest car parking space and the building is 20 metres across a gravel surface (though this is not via the main reception entrance).

The main entrance is approached by crossing a gravel carpark, with an undulating surface leading to 3 stone steps down (approx. 210mm high each) and then via a 16 metre flagstone and gravel path leading to three steps up (one at 80mm, another at 160mm and a third at 200mm high per step). The front entrance door is manual, it is a heavy door 930mm wide with a circular handle and opens inwards into a small entry porch where another door accesses the main reception and welcoming area. There is a Portable Hearing Induction loop available, to ensure support to those with hearing impairment.

There is a drop off point at the side door, adjacent the restaurant, with sloping access from the main car park.

We are able to provide assistance, should you need any help to enter the building, restaurant or bar and with transferring your luggage, should you require. Please request this in advance where possible and upon arrival.
